Russ Goerend posted a couple of short video snippets from our small Tweetup at ITEC 2009 (for some reason a host of Flip cameras suddenly emerged...). In addition to a number of us Iowa tweeps, David Warlick and Steve Dembo kindly joined in the conversation.
Here's the first video:
And here's the second one (FYI, the first 2.5 minutes is a repeat of the end of the previous video):
I love the end of the second video where Angela Maiers talks about the lack of teacher time to learn/do technology:
They have time to run copies. They have time to go make blackline masters. They have time to correct 15,000 true-and-false questions. They have time to make cute little art projects for kids to cut-and-paste for 45 minutes...
Happy viewing (and thanks, Russ)!
